Digital marketing, simply put, cannot be ignored. No one is disputing the power of effective marketing.

But times have changed, and while the need for marketing is still essential, where that marketing is most effective has changed a lot.
If you want to go where the people are, you need to be active online. The influence of the digital landscape, or ‘cyberspace,’ has been steadily growing since the 1990’s, and now, just a few decades later, it is a major virtual environment for the vast majority of people on the planet.
As entrepreneurs, all face challenges throughout our careers. Everyone does. But you can overcome it!
Experience is a highly valued element and
often sought through the course of any business entity.
Using a mentor to help an individual have
some idea or measurable bench mark is a
positive additive to a business equation.
The benefits of having a mentor cannot be emphasized enough.
Mentoring involves the more experienced
party extending the relevant knowledge and
skill in a particular area to the less experienced individual.
This is supposed to help the lesser experiences
individual in more ways than one to understand
and emulate some of the good qualities expounded.
The following are some of the ideas behind the
wisdom in using a mentor: Mentoring involves the
teaching process either directly or indirectly for
the purpose of imparting valuable skills or
information on a particular topic or area and this is
very useful for the novice trying to make some
headway into the said field. Having someone
to lean on for guidance and also to steer the
individual away from decisions that will negatively
impact the business is not only advantages but also
sometimes the defining difference between success
and disaster for the business.

1. Have a keen eye for opportunities
Successful entrepreneurs have one thing in common – they have a keen eye for opportunity. When an entrepreneur looks at the world, he sees it differently. He sees ‘business opportunities’.
For example, when a subdivision has no supermarket nearby, a normal person complains. But an entrepreneur sees profit – an opportunity to open a profitable convenient store.
Keep your eyes open for such opportunities and have the courage to grab it.
2. Practice careful optimism
Be optimistic. This means that you should have a positive outlook. A positive thinking brings forth many possibilities.
